Strawberry banana milkshake

I have a simple breakfast version, which is more calorie-friendly and healthy, and a ‘dessert’ version with ice cream and whipped cream!

Ingredients ratio: The basic ingredients ratio is 2 large bananas to about 26 oz (750g) and 1 cup of milk. I also like to add some vanilla extract to flavor the milkshake and some sweetener if my strawberries are not super sweet.
Sweetener: You can use really any sweetener that you like – sugar / light brown sugar / xylitol as a calorie-friendly option / honey / coconut sugar.

For a more indulgent version: I add 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream instead of vanilla extract and sugar and also decorate the top of the milkshake with whipped cream. You can also sprinkle some shaved chocolate or sprinkles on top!

This milkshake comes out rather thick so if you prefer it on runny side, add more milk.

Frozen version: if you would like your milkshake more thick and super cold and don’t want to use ice cream, you can freeze the bananas (and optionally a small portion of strawberries) and blend with the other ingredients. I don’t recommend freezing all the strawberries because there are simply too many. You can use frozen strawberries but defrost them first, them mix them (strawberries and their juices) with the other ingredients.

How to make it:

You can use a stand blender or a hand (immersion) blender to mix the ingredients. If using a hand blender bear in mind that this recipe yields a lot, the whole milkshake filled the 7 cup (1.8 L) container of my stand blender.

Peel the bananas, cut off the strawberry tops, measure out the milk, add to a blender container and mix with the other ingredients, depending on which version you’re making (vanilla extract and sweetener of your choice for a breakfast version and ice cream for the dessert version). Mix until smooth.

How to store this milkshake:

I will keep in the fridge for 24 hours. Tastes the same as freshly made but it will be thicker, so you can dilute it a bit with milk if you wish. Make sure to stir it thoroughly before serving it.

Milkshakes are my family’s favorite treat and so today I am sharing a classic and delicious recipe for a Strawberry Banana Milkshake!  While my Strawberry Milkshake is also delicious, I love the added depth of flavor you get in my Strawberry Banana Milkshake too! 

Keep reading for the full recipe and all my tips and tricks so that you can master making delicious strawberry banana milkshakes at home for you and your family.


Milkshakes are seriously one of my family’s favorite treats!  And I love that I can save time and money by making delicious homemade milkshakes myself!

I love to start with basics like Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Banana milkshakes.  But we also love expanding to more adventurous ones like Nutella, Pumpkin, Mint Chocolate Chip, Peppermint, Chocolate Banana, and Raspberry Chocolate milkshakes too!

With milkshakes, the options are endless!  You just need a few yummy ingredients and your imagination to create delicious shakes anytime!

But before I get to the recipe let’s chat about a few questions I get asked often. 


It is so easy!  You will simply combine vanilla ice cream, frozen strawberries, ripe bananas, and milk in a blender.  Blend all of the ingredients until it is smooth!  If you like, you can top your strawberry banana milkshake with strawberry syrup, whipped cream, and fresh strawberries, and bananas!  


I mean, no, not really.  Milkshakes just aren’t generally healthy for you!  Smoothies are healthy for you.  But the core premise of a milkshake is that it is typically made with ice cream.  And while I wish it weren’t true, ice cream isn’t that healthy for you.  Sorry.  I wish it wasn’t true too.


Here is the good news!  Bananas are full of nutrients and minerals that can actually help you get a better night’s sleep!  If you are hoping to skip some of the calories of a banana shake though, opt for my yummy Banana Smoothie.  


Bananas contain lots of nutrients that our bodies need including potassium, magnesium and iron.  Generally speaking, most of us probably do not get enough of those every day.  Eating two bananas a day will help increase your intake of those nutrients!  I wouldn’t eat a half a dozen bananas every day, but two bananas consumed as part of a healthy, balanced diet should be fine for most people.


There are many blenders you can use for making smoothies and milkshakes, but I personally own the Vitamix 780 and think it is simply the best.  I get smooth, consistent results every single time which is exactly what I want for all my smoothies!  You can buy your own Vitamix 780 HERE.

If you are hoping to make a milkshake and keep any bits and pieces in it, I do not recommend using a blender.  I recommend snagging this milkshake maker because of its good ratings and reasonable price: Classic DrinkMaker.

It is not a commercial milkshake maker, but it gets the job done at a fraction of the cost and is better for making milkshakes then a blender if you want to keep the integrity of color and if you want a thicker shake.

Since I do not want bits of strawberry or banana in this smoothie, I decided to use my blender for this milkshake today!

Alright, are you ready to get going?  This strawberry banana milkshake will blend together in just a few minutes and I love that I almost always have these ingredients on hand to make it.
